Is the brain the most sexy part of the body?

Jan Fabre




Boston, Harvard University

In this film the scientist Edward O. Wilson and the artist Jan Fabre are put across each other. Their respective domains must reach a consilience to better understand the brain and the beauty. 


'Am I a simple soul?
Because my brain does not yet feel
what my heart can already think?
Is it true that the brain
is the most sexy part of the body?
Today's performance with
the entomologist and biologist
Edward O. Wilson
was a search for the consilience
between the sciences and art.
(There is an arrow through my brain!)'

(Jan Fabre, Boston, 17 November 2006)
